I bought a used copy, side A sounds fine, Side B is muffled as all hell. Is the vinyl version just like this, or is it just worn out from 27 years of play?

As played by Easygroove at Fantazia Castle Donnington 1992...the track list to the right on this page does not show the full Easygroove set, among alot of other tunes Easygroove drops a tune called Doet which is from the Spiral Tribe Ep...hard mate!!!
Also the Anticappella - 2√231 tune listed in iamdek's track listing is not the mix that Easygroove plays, youll need this catalogue number for the tune he plays..PWL Continental ‎– PWLT 205R which is the (Mo'rytmo Mix)...another quality tune..As a footnote iamdek seems to have taken away his tracklist now? lets hope he puts the Full tracklisting up...

Polymonial - C , nothing transports you back to 1992 like that, blood running thick with ecstacy.

Polynomial-C is a great track, melodic, dreamy, and yet at the same time hard as hell. Whilst Tamphex with it's comedy vocal is another hard groove that pounds away inside your brain.
A great release from the early Aphex Twin era.

I purchased a copy with no outer sleeve in late May 1992 as an import in the USA, so I believe the release date of June 1992 is either off by a month, or else I simply have a pre-release promo with no special markings. Does anybody know for sure?
